  • I'm leaving
    The words fall out my mouth
    And onto the floor
    I'm needing yeah
    To pack up my bags and walk right out the door

    This is goodbye
    I'll roll the windows down
    My old Chevrolet
    Don't know where I'm going
    I just know that I can't stay

    Might make it to Memphis
    That ain't far enough
    I speed down the highway to Tulsa, Missouri
    So fast that the hurt can't catch up
    I'm burning your memory
    One mile at a time
    All the way to Tacoma
    By then I hope you're out of my mind

    I'm thinking
    With a truck stop song and a cold cup of coffee
    I'm drinking
    Yeah I'm hurting like hell
    But honey how could I not be
    You make me
    Oh the joker, the fool
    The last one to know so I'm gonna put
    Mountains and deserts and rivers between us
    Go as far as I can go

    Might make it to Memphis
    But that ain't far enough
    I'll speed down the highway to Tulsa, Missouri
    So fast that the hurt can't catch up
    I'm burning your memory
    One mile at a time
    All the way to Tacoma
    By then I hope you're out of my mind

    Might be some tears in Topeka
    A couple of sleepless nights in Cheyenne
    And the time that I miss you babe
    I'll hit the gas as fast as I can

    Might make it to Memphis
    The Kansas City line
    All the way to Tacoma
    By then I hope you're out of my mind
    All the way to Tacoma
    By then I hope you're out of my mind Writer/s: BOB DIPIERO, CAITLYN SMITH
